The crash site is heartbreaking to see, as you can tell that the Sunbird Aviation plane was just seconds away from reaching the tarmac.
Belongings lie spilled and left behind. A doctor confirmed that three children under the age of 10 were on board, one of whom was a young toddler. The children and their mother were travelling in to Kiunga to make their way to Tabubil, where their father works with Ok Tedi Mining Limited (OTML).
Another father, also an employee of OTML, mourns the death of his 18-year-old daughter. His last born child.
He made his way down from Tabubil hoping to see his child’s body but that will not happen until all investigations are competed.
For now the bodies are state property and can only be accessed by officials tasked to determine the cause of the plane crash and their deaths.
